Born in Madrid (Spain) in 1981, I started “borrowing” my older brother’s camera before I was 10 and my passion led me to be completely self-taught from books and to spending my pocket money on films instead of sweets.
I have photographed buildings, landscapes and people from over 25 countries and the knowledge I acquired in my two degrees (“Architecture” and “Design and Innovation”) shows right through the images and compositions. All of them are exercises of German-accurate composition, proportion, geometry and color literacy. I always search for the unshown and the unconventional (as National Geographic stated in his award-winning picture footnote:”…rules are there to be broken…”).
I started looking for professionals to learn from in Madrid, where I worked as photographer assistant for Pablo Lecroisey at Dolche & Lecro, S.L. (www.dolchelecro.es) and Carlos Hermann Bruch (www.chbruch.com). My passion has led me to find my new “guru”: José María Mellado. “I have succumbed to the digital era but I have learnt how to show the emotions hidden behind each photograph’s special and unique moment”. I was represented in London by The Wilton Gallery and I have done assignments for magazines and newspapers in different countries.
